In order to do something well we must first be willing to do it badly.”  

Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way Every Day

The risk of failure inherent in creating can be enough to derail the motivation to even try.  To try new techniques means most will be a flop, while once in a great while you will hit on a tremendous success.  The key is that there is no shortcut to success.  It will never come unless one is willing to wade through the failures.  The failures, the doing it badly, actually become an essential part of the doing it well.
